Young Alumni Are Invited to Fairfield Awards Dinner for a Special Rate

For a reduced ticket price of $250, Young Alumni (classes 2009-2018) are invited to attend the Awards Dinner on March 28, an annual event that celebrates Fairfield, supports scholarship, and offers a chance to connect with fellow alumni in New York City.

“I first attended the dinner in Spring 2015 at the encouragement of one of my Fairfield mentors, who has been attending for more than a decade," said young alumnus Dominic Paolino ’14, a 2019 Fairfield Awards Dinner Committee Member. "He highlighted the evening as not only a wonderful opportunity to recognize distinguished alumni and network with fellow Stags, but also as an opportunity to support the Multicultural Scholarship Fund.”

Last year, over 500 alumni, parents, students, and friends of the University came together at the Awards Dinner in New York City. They reunited with their Fairfield family, forged new connections, honored outstanding members of the University community, and gave to create possibiltiies for future generations of Stags.

Since 1988, the Fairfield Awards Dinner has been a true celebration of Fairfield and has raised more than $18 million for the Alumni Multicultural Scholarship Fund and other endowed scholarships, to help students realize their full potential through a Fairfield education, regardless of economic or social barriers. Fairfield’s flagship fundraising event for scholarship that celebrates inclusive excellence, the Awards Dinner also honors the achievements and volunteer service of alumni, parents, faculty and staff.

“I invite you to consider attending or supporting the Fairfield Awards Dinner in any capacity in which you are able to do so," said Claretta S. Mills ’16, also a young alumna and 2019 Awards Dinner Committee Member. "The critical funds raised through the dinner support the Alumni Multicultural Scholarship fund and other endowed scholarships that provide talented students with the opportunities they deserve.”

Once the evening’s program and dinner have concluded, the Fairfield University Alumni Association will host an after party at which Comedian Joe DeVito '90, of NBC's Last Comic Standing fame, will perform.
